Eliminates the possibility the aircraft nose strut damage due to:

  • oversteering aircraft nose strut control by ultimate effort giving out warning and emergency signal
  • towing capacity control according to the type of aircraft
  • compensation of the aircraft nose strut longitudinal angle of inclination
  • performance of the hitching /uncoupling process of the aircraft is controlled by the ATC safety system

The full model Hercules Aircraft Towing Complex is protected by the patent and represents the combination of the engineering solutions which allow to create the towing tractor with unique performance characteristics.
